Gold Rush

I had my first Gold Rush at The Silver Dollar, and since in my mind the folks over at The Silver Dollar are geniuses I thought this drink was something they whipped up. And it honestly wasn’t until recently that I realized while it may have been their Gold Rush recipe the cocktail is actually a tried and true classic AND a cold alternative to a Hot Toddy

I know, I know it’s gotten colder over the last few days. A toddy probably sounds better at this point than a Gold Rush, but I can only have some many hot cocktails before I’m ready to throw in the towel. And with the Thanksgiving holiday coming up in just a few days it’s safe to say I’m going to be drinking more than just a few cocktails. Best part about these guys? They’re easy to make with all only 3 ingredients, and ingredients (besides the bourbon) that should be in anyone’s kitchen that you visit for Thanksgiving dinner. Win, win.
